Tea Party Scorecard
The Independent Tea Party Patriots, a Michigan Tea Party group, grades the votes of this and every other Michigan legislator on “core tea party issues” in a regularly-updated scorecard. 100% is considered an ideal rating.
January 2011 - March 2012
Nancy Jenkins received a 75% rating on the January 2011 - March 2012 Tea Party Scorecard.
In June 2011, recall language was approved targeting Nancy Jenkins for recall for her support of a strengthened emergency financial manager law. Organizers needed to deliver 7,317 signatures to the Secretary of State by 5 p.m. on August 5 in order to trigger a recall vote, something they said would not be a problem.
However, it appears the signatures never existed. A series of strange events surrounded Daniel Long, who was to deliver the petitions. On August 25, members of a state recall committee made a formal request for an investigation by the state police into what happened to the petitions. Long turned over some 1,400 signatures to the state group, but claimed to have more than 10,000.
In early November, state police closed the investigation, stating there was "no evidence any signed petitions disappeared," while Lenawee County Prosecutor Jonathan Poer ruled here was no evidence to support any criminal charges.
